You will be staying in School of the World's lodging. The facilities include a common kitchen and dining area, a yoga studio, photo/video editing studio, 2 Spanish classrooms, offices, 12 guestrooms, a small swimming pool, and a relaxing garden. It is located in a quiet neighborhood close to the center of town and is just a few minutes walk from the beach, dozens of great restaurants, bars, grocery stores, and everything else you could need.
Our certified instructors blend a variety of styles (including Ashtanga yoga, Iyengar yoga, Anusara yoga, and Vinyasa flow) to make every day’s practice unique. Yoga classes are an hour and a half in duration each day, Monday- Friday.
School of the World has developed a photography program that satisfies everyone from first time photographers to working professionals looking to learn new techniques, and every level in between. The photography program was started by School of the World founder Zach McDuffie, an award winning photographer whose travel and beauty photography have appeared in publications around the world.
Beginners become acquainted with the fundamentals of photography, digital workflow, and basic digital editing. Intermediate and advanced photographers learn new shooting techniques and advanced editing, and students of all skill levels benefit from having a local guide take them to shoot at amazing locales they otherwise would never see.
Our Spanish program is designed to help you become proficient and comfortable communicating in Spanish, while enjoying a relaxing and fun environment conducive to learning.
Beginner 1, Beginner 2, Intermediate, and Intermediate-Advanced levels are available.
Study globally, practice locally
Our program meets international university standards for Spanish study but focuses on the skills you need for practical and fast communication with native speakers. Our Spanish lessons cover new material for approximately two hours per day in class, then students meet again with an instructor for another one to two hours per day for labs.
Labs are optional (unless you are getting college credit) and are designed to reinforce the lessons covered in class through games, field trips, homework help, and fun activities such as cooking regional foods or attending cultural events.
